I know, but they are already nicely put together, you don't have to search for them.
And they work great on Kodi, so why not as standalone for us as well? ;)

Most of those came from the same site he's already using, https://www.shadertoy.com


Yes they are, i really love that site there is so much online which you can use with this Display, the only thing was missing was to capture the audio data from somewhere, but this turned out to be
an easy task :)

Is there a way to get this display working with the Retropie 4.3.8 image that's been available?

that's up to the developers of retropie.
The drivers are in the kernel, the image needs to use them.

Thanks a lot.
As quick update i inspected the screen more closely and it appears it was not seated correctly on the bottom of the white plactic bordering it. Indeed it is sitting on the edge of the white border on one side and both plastic and screen were damaged in the process. The damage is more apparent on picture than irl.

Here are a few pics.

Are there any chances we can get a hand on the sources of the console kit daemon that comes with ogst?

Iam pretty new to linux dev but would like to extend the daemon.

The thing iam mostly interested in, is how to react on a "game started"-event. Like... how can i make my code react to a certain "action" ?

There is no daemon.. it's just a bunch of shell scripts that are started.
Basically you use mplayer to display a picture or video on the LCD and a script tells the system when to do it.
As starting a emulator from the frontend requires you to give a start command, that start command is calling the script, that's all.
No magic behind it.

So what does the console-kit-daemon process do?
If there is no daemon, why is this thing called daemon :P
And its not a shellscript btw :)

I already found the script that calls mplayer.

So can you give me any clue where i can take a look in these start commands? I guess somewhere at retroarch?
I understand how you do it in theory but where do i start to look at in terms of actuall files?

No one besides you is calling it a daemon.
lephro wrote:And its not a shellscript btw :)

There is one script that calls mplayer and passes a video/picture to be displayed on the LCD.
There are several scripts to start emulators which define when the other script that calls mplayer is started and hand over the video/picture that should be shown to this script.
I don't know what you want to call it, but for me these are scripts as they all run under bash.

lephro wrote:So can you give me any clue where i can take a look in these start commands?

/usr/local/bin all files with -xbmc in the name are the scripts that are used to start the emulators.

Retroarch has nothing to do with this.

Thanks for you patient answers. You see, iam really new to this, but i hope i will be able to contribute something some day.

I guess the xbmc scripts are for handling the launch from kodi. How is the launch from EmulationStation handled? I couldnt get the Kodi version running, since my libary contains too many roms (the scraper would take about a week... i dont have that patience / time).

Regarding the "console-kit-daemon":

I got a binary process (not a script.. dunno how you call it in the linux world... i would call it programm^^) that always starts with my OGST that is called / named "console-kit-daemon" which is located in /usr/sbin/. I have no clue what it does or where it came from. I thought thats the thing responseable for the video playing. Does anyone have a clue?

I use the same launcher for all frontends. The image was started in 2014 back then EmulationStation was not very good, and Kodi was still called xbmc, therefore the name, but the scripts are versatile enough to run for every frontend, therefore they are used on ROM Collection Browser (Kodi), EmulationStation, and Attract Mode alike.

Yes that is a common issue. Although it might sound fun having every single game in existence in a library for a system, there's no way you gonna play every single game. So I'd highly suggest limiting yourself to the games you really like.
You will have the same issues with other frontends like EmulationStation as they also wait on timeouts for thegamesdb.net which can take very long if you have thousands of games.
It's easier to add games later than trying to scrap thousands of games you never play.

That's part of the OS and has nothing to do with the OGST console kit. It's a daemon for keyboard and mouse input:

by now it's probably a lot faster as I uploaded a new image that has already most of the updates installed, so the entire setup process should be a little bit faster.

yea here is a pic of it in just the normal mode with no emulators loading currently scraping another rom set after i will show psx logo. does it with nothing connected to usb ports as well. Could it possibly be to the usb cable? the kit sent me the wrong cable and i had to use whatever cable i could find and it seems after switching one the screen actually worked the first cable i used i couldnt use mouse or keyboard attached to the board.

hmm looks like the colors are inverted. Maybe @odroid has an idea what it could be.
Maybe it's a manufacture issue.

The USB cable should only be for the 4 USB ports, the rest is done by the ribbon cable, that's the only one needed for the display to work.

I don't think so.
Because the small TFT LCD uses a serial SPI communication, the 30pin IDC cable might not be a root cause.
I think the LCD panel could be damaged.
But we might need to replace all parts.

They will reply tomorrow since it is already near PM 8:00 in Korea.
